بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
We are continuing with KS3 this year and the resources we are using are almost the same as last year since we were unable to get on with it full time. So inshaa Allaah we hope we can complete the KS3 year 7 work this year with Maimoonah.
KS3 is, what shall I say, a bit more challenging than previous years more for me than for Maimoonah. I need to recap, look into information to teach her certain concepts.
When I looked at the Grammar book we are using, I realized there are a lot more to learn, and these Grammar terms and rules have not been the ones that stay in your head for long years.
So make it easier for me as well as for Maimoonah we started a "Grammar Byte" Notebook.
We use the internet or other reference books and note down each of the grammar rules that we study. The textbook does talk about the grammar rules but the explanation is very short and I found this site for grammar bytes which gives a clear explanation with examples. This way Maimoonah is able to understand and remember as I keep saying a sentence to her and ask her to identify the subject, object transitive verb, intransitive verb etc,
This notebook will be handy for quick reference as well to check something.
So as we go on we will look for the "bytes" and stick them or write them and continue the activities in the Grammar workbook Inshaa Allaah.
How do you go about your Grammar Lessons?
